    A group of teenagers were playing in the transparent water of the river in a summer day. They were practicing holding their breath under water. At that moment a thought suddenly crossed my mind. How would we survive when the entire earth submerges after all the ice melts? I was trying to imagine how portrait photographs would look at that time.

    What a fantastic portrait, and wonderful submission to our "Underwater Beauty" assignment. Your question is so thoughtful Milton. I love it. I agree with Your Shot photographer Rory Sagner who commented, "Beautiful clarity and color... and I love the shadows the water ripples cast on his body! Interesting thoughts for sure!" Well done.
